“Last year’s Pokémon GO Summer Tour brought hundreds of thousands
of Trainers together at real-world events around the world which
left us with some truly unforgettable moments and stories,” said
John Hanke, founder and CEO of Niantic, Inc. “This summer, we’re
looking to continue to build upon that success and create even more
ways for Trainers to enjoy and interact with these incredible parks
and cities and build lasting friendships throughout their journeys
of encountering Pokémon in the ‘real-world.’”

In the United States, Pokémon GO Fest returns to Chicago for its
third year for Pokémon GO Fest 2019 from June 13 to June 16,
expanding the event from two to four days. This year’s event will
take place across the expansive Grant Park, where Trainers of all
ages will get to catch an array of Pokémon while interacting with
physical installations and participating in exclusive activities
throughout the park. Pokémon GO Fest: Chicago in Grant Park will
also feature more than 300 acres of walking space in addition to
some of Chicago’s most iconic landmarks and attractions. Tickets
will go on sale through an all-new Niantic ticketing system built
within the Pokémon GO app later this month. For more information on

Following the massive success of the Pokémon GO Safari Zone in
Dortmund, Germany in 2018, the real-world event in 2019 will now be
featured as Pokémon GO Fest: Dortmund for four days from July 4 to
July 7. Hosted at the renowned Westfalenpark, Trainers will have an
opportunity to play Pokémon GO together with others, explore
Dortmund’s cultural history and interact with local attractions
while playing Pokémon GO together with others. Tickets for the
event will be going on sale later this spring. For more information

Throughout each event in the Pokémon GO Summer Tour 2019, Trainers
who are not attending the real-world events will still be able to
participate in Pokémon GO special challenges to work towards a
global goal of unlocking rewards for all Trainers. Details for the
global challenges during each Pokémon GO Fest will be revealed
ahead of each event. In addition to these unique challenges,
Pokémon GO Community Days will also be hosted throughout the months
of June, July and August giving Trainers even more reasons to
venture outside and play together.
